MEPs, vote on EU Action for sustainability

We are strongly encouraging Members of the European Parliament to support the ENVI committee own initiative report EU Action for sustainability tomorrow. The report addresses the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and responds to the European Commission’s communication on “Next steps for a sustainable European future: EU action for sustainability” from November 2016.

This report contains, amongst others, important positive elements on:

  • The need for an implementation strategy for the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • The need for the post-2020 Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) to reorient the Union’s budget towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
  • The need for significant additional effort in order to fully implement the Nature Directives and meet the global and European biodiversity objectives.

We count on MEPs support for making the EU deliver on its own commitments to benefit its people and save the planet!
